repeating - this was what I said first (yes, we can change the "official"
to whatever):

        I guess I didn't get enough sleep before reading that -- it's from 2.8,
        which in turn was a revised version of the notice in 2.7.2 (the quotes
        are unnecessary, but I suppose Fote felt the need to qualify it, and I
        didn't think about it in this context).
(it's on my list)
